We've got 12 nuggets of Fox News outrageousness for you to mull over and vote on this week. The subjects include the Hobby Lobby decision, Bill Ayers, unions and the - cough, cough - coming Ice Age. If you don't believe there's a war on women, check out some of the comments after the jump!
And the nominees are...
Andrea Tantaros on the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby ruling: “They’re saying this is a huge win for women.”
Jesse Watters to a woman at the National Organization for Women conference: “Have you ever burned your bra?”
Jesse Watters, “analyzing” Hillary Clinton’s objections to the Hobby Lobby ruling:
“This is her bread and butter. This is how she’s gonna try to win the White House. This is what she’s gonna go do: She needs the single ladies vote - I call them the Beyoncé voters, the single ladies. ...Obama won single ladies by 76% last time, and they made up about a quarter of the electorate. They depend on government, because they’re not depending on their husbands. They need things like contraception, health care, and they love to talk about equal pay.”
Discredited author and noted Clinton hater Ed Klein dubiously claiming to have this inside information about Bill Clinton: “He’s come to the conclusion that Obama’s looking for a Mini-Me, a clone of himself to make sure that Hillary doesn’t get the nomination. So Bill feels that his biggest enemy is Barack Obama.”
Megyn Kelly, fear mongering that colleges and universities are riddled with terrorists on staff because Bill Ayers and a few other former 60s radicals are now college professors, “I don’t know how we’re supposed to screen for this when we send our kids to college. Could you ask ‘em whether they have a criminal history? Could you ask ‘em whether they ever bombed anything? Could you make sure your professor didn’t do that before you start listening to him?”
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, ignoring the mountain of information showing that Bill Ayers and Barack Obama were never close: “What you see here really is his undeniable influence on President Obama. Not just in Obama’s denial of American exceptionalism, his belief that America’s the problem, not the solution, but specifically in the Bergdahl case.”
Jonathan Hoenig, discussing the Supreme Court's Harris v. Quinn ruling: “What are unions in today’s economy? They’re fascist parasites. They only are supportive of a free society when they’re at the helm.”
Climate change denier Joe Bastardi: “Twenty years from now, we’re going to be hearing about the next ice age coming again.”
Larry Gatlin, bashing Obama to a smiling Ainsley Earhardt: “Give me a break, who elected this doofus? The liberals and the low information voters.”
Elisabeth Hasselbeck, attacking feminists who protested a men’s rights conference: “Some feminists are comparing the gathering to hosting a hate group. Does the intolerance show that there is a feminist war on men?”
Kimberly Guilfoyle, defending the Hobby Lobby decision by promoting a bogus anti-choice talking point: “So here it’s just dealing with the - Greg’s favorite word - the abortifacient, and whether or not those can be covered.”
Megyn Kelly, in attacking Sandra Fluke, describes Fox News: “It doesn’t matter how many times you say something, it doesn’t matter if it’s true, she says it over and over again and they’re going to believe it. It’s not true, don’t believe it, she doesn’t know what she’s talking about.”
